Not a big surprise. While HL-DT-ST is a brand in its own right, it's
called "Hitachi-LG Data Storage". <http://www.hlds.co.jp/e_index.jsp>

They are only supplying OEM markets, I first came across them in
Fujitsu-Siemens Computers (FSC) Scenic W600 and W620 "workstations"
(aka. Pentium 4 Peeceeh), but the DVD writers FSC shipped were all NEC
drives. I've certainly seen worse stuff than this, OTOH I have only
tried Verbatim DataLifePlus 16-24X, whoever made them (MCC I believe)
and a few 10X CD-RW of various brands, neither caused a problem, and
reading SUSE 9.3 or 10.0 DVD 9 GB disks wasn't a problem either.
